 Revenge for the Axem Rangers is a video game, developed by Zentech Studios.  It will be released on the Nintendo Retro System.  This is the first Nintendo-related game to concentrate on the Axem Rangers.



Ten years after the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Bowser's Keep suddenly began functioning, indicating life in there.  We are then shown Axem Red, who has woken from his "grave".  He then reactivates Black, Green, Yellow, and Pink, and then says that they should seriously find Smithy.  We are then pushed into an intro level (as Red) and we are then shown the basics of the game.  After a while of exploring, they find that Exor disappeared along with their master, indicating that Smithy has deceased.  

Everyone is in dismay until Green mentions a book that should bring back Exor.  Red, interested, asks him for the first time to give him information from the book.  As Green was about to read, sneaky Waluigi comes in and steals the book, prompting Red to battle him.  After the tutorial battle against Waluigi, the book was returned and Waluigi escapes.  Green only manages to read the first two pages as the rest of the book has been torn apart and ruined, angering Red.  Then Red suggests that they find those pages.  After a bit of exploring, the pages were found and read.  They must collect the seven stars and resummon Exor in order to regain Smithy.  Satisfied, the Axem Rangers took off...
